  • Main Waiver Wire Pickups
    • GB Geronimo Allison (37% owned) @LAR
      • A favorite WR add among the Footballers if available in your league. Allison missed time with a hamstring injury but is hopeful to return to game action with the Packers coming off their Bye Week.
    • GB Marquez Valdes-Scantling (8% owned) @LAR
    • ARI Christian Kirk (26% owned) vs SF
    • NO Tre’Quan Smith (17% owned) @MIN
      • With Ted Ginn on IR, Smith out-snapped Cameron Meredith big time.
    • LAC Tyrell Williams (15% owned) on BYE then @SEA
      • Boom/Bust player but
    • LAC Mike Williams (50% owned) on BYE then @SEA
    • NYJ Robby Anderson (47% owned) @CHI
      • Owners were burned when all of sudden Robby got 10 targets instead of Kearse. The Jets also signed Rishard Matthews. Will it stay unpredictable? Probably.
    • DEN Courtland Sutton (5% owned) @KC
      • Sutton could have big opportunity IF the Broncos were to trade Emmanuel Sanders or Demaryius Thomas.
    • MIA Danny Amendola (10% owned) @HOU
      • Both Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson are out for at least Week 8.
  • Main Waiver Wire Pickups
    • IND Marlon Mack (56% owned) @OAK
      • The clear top RB add if available in your league.
    • ATL Ito Smith (54% owned) on BYE then @WAS
    • OAK Jalen Richard (22% owned) vs IND
      • Marshawn Lynch to the IR. Jalen Richard has averaged close to 6 receptions a game.
    • OAK Doug Martin (24% owned) vs IND
      • KRAMPUS may return to fantasy “relevance” with Lynch hitting the IR.
    • BUF Chris Ivory (8% owned) vs NE
      • LeSean McCoy left early with a concussion and did not return. He also appeared to injure his right ankle, but the Bills haven’t reported on that.
    • SF Raheem Mostert (13% owned) @ARI
      • “Colonel Mustard” could continue to see work IF Matt Breida actually misses a game. The Cardinals have given up A LOT of points to running backs. Mostert was also featured in the Week 8 Waiver Wire Film Study
    • GB Aaron Jones (69% owned) @LAR
    • CLE Duke Johnson (54%  owned) @PIT
    • PHI Wendell Smallwood (50% owned) vs JAX
    • NE Kenjon Barner (1% owned) @BUF
      • Sony Michel suffered an MCL sprain and is week-to-week. The Patriots could sign someone but right now it’s James White and Kenjon Barner.
    • DEN Devontae Booker (3% owned) @DET
      • Royce Freeman suffered an ankle sprain and could miss Week 8 (or more).
    • HOU D’Onta Foreman (18% owned) @KC
